With one member already off to (money) greener pastures, and another certain to follow — and yet another reportedly on its way with the former — the beleaguered commissioner of the Big 12 conference has issued a statement.
And, yes, he’s still yammering on about “the process”.
Here’s the release from commissioner Dan Beebe:
“The Big 12 Conference has been informed that the University of Colorado has accepted an invitation to join the Pacific-10 Conference. I continue to work through the process that was agreed upon last week by our Board of Directors to address membership issues, and are working tirelessly towards the long-term viability of the Big 12.”
Feel better, Big 12 fans? At least, you know, you have a “process” goin’ for ya.
